Skip to comments.Interview with Virgil Goode: How Do We Elevate Constitutional Principles?
Posted on 08/29/2012 6:46:58 AM PDT by xzins
...Virgil Goode has long supported a bill to audit the Federal Reserve, which recently cleared the House. He advocates currency that is real and backed by gold or silver.
Goode champions fair and equitable opportunity, but its up to you to use it. Government cannot ensure equal results because every individual differs;
An ardent proponent of balancing the budget, our deficits Goode insists, stem from spending. Taxes should be simple and fair Im not for increasing income taxes; if we even have an income tax.
The candidate laments too much federal involvement in our lives offering as an example the Department of Education, should not be involved, schooling should be determined by states and localities
Government forcibly redefining marriage to include anything other than one man and one woman would be totally foreign to the views of the framers of the Constitution, first ten amendments and Declaration of Independence.
Goode denies that the Founders, men of deep-seated values, would consider a cross on the town square or the Ten Commandments posted at school as un-constitutional... public displays arent forcing religion on anyone,
He adamantly opposed our Libyan debacle
Goode implores following the Constitution, we cant let the UN decide clarifying I dont mind working with allies like we did in World War One and Two, but Id never let U.S. troops serve under UN command. ...
Im totally opposed to illegal immigration and will put a moratorium on new Green Cards until unemployment reduces. Jobs should [go] to U.S. citizens first. Goode would eliminate automatic birthright citizenship
Going the third party route is admittedly precarious ... unless living in a key battleground state, its unlikely your vote matters much. Likewise, for the many voters (that) might stay home, pulling the lever for Goode seems sound.

In addition to us being so far down the road that a new party is necessary, there is this view that ABO republicans should consider:
Two things about ABOs who claim they'll hold Romney's feet to the fire and win back the party after the election:
1. They are not effectively holding Romney's feet to the fire:... in just the past week he's come out for Romneycare again and also for a "health" exception in allowing abortions.
2. The election:
IF ROMNEY WINS: He will be the head of the party, his METHODS will be lauded as effective, he will install the leaders, and he will set the agenda.
IF ROMNEY LOSES: He and his will be shown to be losers, his methods will be proven totally illegitimate, the party will be in turmoil, the leadership will be shakey and defeatable.
Which scenario will provide the best opportunity for conservatives to change the power structure?
Which scenario will entrench liberal republicanism for decades?
It's that simple.
He will get the same amount of votes as the Rosie/Sheehan 3rd party crowd and they will cancel each other out
Amen GSC. If you’re going to vote for some clown who won’t get any electoral action, way settle? Grow a pair and vote for yourself. Anything less is compromise.
Sometimes survival trumps ideology.

Gee... Maybe we should have stuck with the guys offering plane tickets...
GOING HOT my FRiend!!
Somehow, I had missed your post (and went looking for it many times) and thanks for pointing out your authorship, I will be giving you full credit for that from this point on. :)
Explain to me again the difference between Obamney and Obozzo?
Fact is, they are the exact same in so many ways.
Obama ... Romney .... Obama .... Soros .... Romney
If RINO Romney (author of gay marriage AND death panels)
wins, America the free loses.
ROMNEY is the white Obama.
Why would it matter if one big government, pro-abortion, pro-homosexualism, pro-gun control, wins over another just like him?
I've got nothing on my conscience if I vote my principles:
Incidentally, the Apostle Paul rejects the idea of doing evil for a supposedly good purpose. Romans 3: "--"Let us do evil that good may result"? Their condemnation is deserved.
So, it is contrary to Christian teaching for me to kill a few babies myself in order to prevent a bigger baby killer.
In short, the lesser of two evils is still evil, but it's more than that...it's condemned.
Why do you want to vote against everything that made our Country great to begin with?
I’m not pretending to fight, I actually fight.
Pretending to vote is pretending to fight.
I believe the Green ticket this year is Stein/Honkala. It might very well garner more votes than the Constitution Party. Both are entirely irrelevant and, as you point out, likely cancel each other out. There are dead-enders and hardheads in each election cycle that sit our or waste their votes on 3rd party's. These people end up making no different, no one remembers their efforts and no one really cares.
